Good morning,

We hope this message finds everyone safe and well! We find ourselves once again in the midst of a rise in COVID 19 cases amongst vaccinated and unvaccinated people. Our top priority is to ensure the health and safety of our staff, customers, and families. Everyone at Caffe Italia continues to remain diligent with strict sanitation and PPE practices as put forth by the NYS Health Department and CDC Guidelines.

Sadly, we were notified that a vaccinated staff member tested positive for COVID-19. The last day this staff member worked was Saturday, August 7th. We send them well wishes for a speedy recovery! Due to our staff’s exposure to this individual, we have decided to close beginning today, Wednesday, August 11th in order for all of our staff members to be tested and our establishment to be professionally cleaned and sanitized. We are hopeful that we will be able to reopen on Wednesday August 18th which is 14 days from exposure date. This is subject to change pending all staff test results. Upon reopening we will require that anyone entering our establishment must wear a mask for the protection of everyone’s health and safety.

Unfortunately, we are unable to honor all scheduled reservations from 08/11-08/17. We are so grateful for your continued support, patience and understanding during such challenging times. Please stay safe, stay healthy, and stay positive. We will see you all very soon!
All the best,

Your Caffe Italia Family (Sue, Paulie, Maria, and Michael Romeo)

We went tonight For donnerceith our friends Mike and lois M. The food was delicious! I hope to go back soon. Just the best Italian food In the Albany area.
Thank you Pac O Matic Romeo for the love in a jar....the ONLY sauce I’ll use besides making my own. Appreciate you offering this fresh, flavorful sauce.....a can’t miss and a must have! 🇮🇹💯#cafeItalia
We ordered delivery the other night, it came still piping hot, super fast, amazing delivery woman was masked and pleasant!! The best chicken parm ever and they even do homemade limoncello TO GO!! You cannot beat it 🎉
Maria Karandy, this reminded me of you and Caffe Italia.
Great time ringing in the new year with the Caffe family ❤️🎉 Happy New Year and may 2020 bring health, happiness and prosperity to you all 😘
This past Monday evening, my wife and I ate at your restaurant. In town that day for a funeral we had driven from Boston to attend. It was a somber and sad day to say goodbye to a lovely woman who left us all far too soon. When we arrived at the restaurant, we were met by a cheerful young man who found us a table for two. The entire staff could not have been more kind, cheerful, obliging, thoughtful, and warm. Everything they served was top-notch. They obviously took great care and pride in all that they did. By the end of the evening, we felt as though we were long awaited friends and had been given a private party - just for we two and our battered and saddened hearts. A note of appreciation for all that you did for us that night. I wish you all long lives, prosperity, happiness, good health, fine food and wine and long, lingering laughter. You made a sweet ending to a bitter day. Peace, light and love to all of you.
Baby Dominic wants to thank Cafe Italia for sending home sauce & food after his early arrival surprise. A very tired Mommy can spend more time with me & have a few yummy dinners❤️ best restaurant & family around. So Grateful
35 Years of meals with Joe's family and extended family. Never a meal we didn't remember with love. Always greeted with open arms. All life should be so good!
Juan Rivera Jr.
